A 'fuck-off Japan' day
So when I get to my home station, I try again. Well, it works, to a point. I had a bunch of 500y coins which I wanted to use, but it only accepted two. The rest rolled out. Fuck-off Japan. I did not have other cash to make up the difference. What kind of martinet little fuck programs the machine to accept a limited amount of small change? A Japanese one, that's what.
A JR martinet little fuck. I can renew my pass at a JR station, but not a subway or private line station, even though the subway is one of the two segments on my monthly pass, because you have to renew Suica monthly passes at a JR station. Fuck-off Japan. They don't want to deal with 'small change' worth $5.50 US but they will run their trains at 200% capacity at off-peak, and 400% at rush hour. Fuck-off Japan. I count capacity by seats, not cubic meters to stuff full of body parts. Your train lines still lose money at that capacity? Fuck-off Japan.
Now I have to give my wife the coins to burden her wallet, and take her lighter 1000y notes, for your convenience. Fuck-off Japan. It's not like you, JR, have done anything for her: enforce the women-only cars so she didn't have to be assaulted in JHS and HS, or the seating for pregnant women when she was. Fuck-off Japan. Or, I don't know, do anything about your hiring for women either (I'd rather be train-stuffed by a J-babe than some drone with a prostate problem). Fuck-off Japan.
I am getting tired of the rigidity here:
- just one way to do each greeting for each strata in each situation. Fuck-off Japan.
- Japanese puns by Gaijin cannot be funny: they must be the authorized version by Kansai hacks. Fuck-off Japan.
- when you compliment my child, you cannot help referring to only the foreign 'race' of one parent. Fuck-off Japan.
- your oyaji won't take a train seat beside me, but I took a morning shower and they smell like shit. Fuck-off Japan.
- 'Japan has four seasons.' Wrong! Fuck-off Japan.
- 'When you go hiking you can have onigiri.' The fuck? Why would you want to eat cold rice? And who's stopping you going to the conbini to get some? Fuck-off Japan.
- sunrise on mountaintops. Fuck-off Japan.
- 'Japanese has no swear words.' 糞食らえ！
- Idiotic home construction. Fuck-off Japan.
- getting the yakuza to build your nuclear reactors on the ocean in a siesmic zone. Fuck-off Japan.
